That’s now being formalized as a September 27th, 2022 release date has been set for the series that will be priced at $39.95. The set will be in Japanese with English subtitles and is listing the extras above, though not the event footage unless they’re counting it as part of the promos. Check out the finalized cover below.

The series was directed by Katsumi Ono with Akifumi Kaneko serving as the script supervisor as well as writing the scripts. Character design was handled by Satoru Fujimoto based on Dan Yoshii’s original designs and the production was animated at Satelight.

Symphogear GX brought back the main cast with Aoi Yūki as Hibiki Tachibana, Nana Mizuki as Tsubasa Kazanari, Ayahi Takagaki as Chris Yukine, Yōko Hikasa as Maria Cadenzavna Eve, Yoshino Nanjou as Shirabe Tsukuyomi and Ai Kayano as Kirika Akatsuki. It also recently added Inori Minase as Carol Mars Dinheim, Misaki Kuno as Elfnein, Michiyo Murase as Gally Tuman, Shiori Izawa as Mika Jaukaan, Shizuka Ishigami as Leia Dalahim and Masumi Tazawa as Farrah Suyuf.

Property concept: Two years ago, a pair of idols, Tsubasa Kazanari and Kanade Amou, collectively known as ZweiWing, fought against an alien race known as Noise using armor known as Symphogear. To protect a girl named Hibiki Tachibana, who got severely wounded by the Noise, Kanade sacrificed herself. Two years later, as Tsubasa has fought the Noise alone, Hibiki ends up gaining the same power as Kanade.
